I was pretty sure I couldn't improve anything with 5 minutes of thinking. I'm glad the most obvious things have already been done, and I'm sure you and others have put a lot of effort into this. My question was more what, if anything, can be done to speed up the cluster.

Also, how long does it take to complete an exp-run on the cluster?
